Pat Lawson Muse retires from WRC-TV and honored with Maryland resolution

by | Mar 31, 2023

Pat Lawson Muse, who recently retired from News4 in D.C., was presented a resolution on Maryland’s house floor in recognition of her 40-year career.

As she made her exit from WRC, she shared her journey to and through the News4 station and her favorite moments along the way.

“I came to Washington in 1973, after graduating high school in Las Vegas, Nevada,” she said. “And moving to Washington was a culturally exciting experience for me. I’d never been to the nation’s capital,” or spent time in a predominantly African American city.

Muse arrived to attend Howard University, planning to study political science and then law.

But as she spent time in the District, which was “just getting its home rule legs, just about to elect its first mayor,” she realized there were other things she’d rather study.

“I majored in broadcast management,” she said. “My intention was to focus on business and to pursue the business side of broadcasting. But during my junior year … junior into the senior year at Howard, some of the students started a carrier current radio station, WHBC, which stood for ‘Howard’s Black communicators.'”
